Talk About An Amazing Proposal Video!

On April 13th, Justin Baldoni proposed to his girlfriend Emily at the restaurant where they had their first date. He told her he was running late, had the restaurant opened just for her, and set up hidden cameras all around her. When she sat down at the table, there was a TV in front of her set to take her on a journey that would lead to the proposal of a lifetime. This is what happened…

Yes, you’ve probably seen friends and connections sharing this video on Facebook and Twitter. But if you haven’t watched it yet, set aside 27 minutes to do so. Yes, that’s quite a commitment of time in today’s ADD ridden world, but this is truly an amazing marriage proposal video that will bring you to tears.

I Underwent Septoplasty Surgery Last Week

Yes, 2013 has not been kind to me. Now if you’re a long-time reader, then you know that I suffered some permanent vision loss due to a freak medical occurrence. It’s been a long road (with many expensive co-pays), but all of those issues are now behind me, and I’ve gotten back to “life as normal”.

About a month ago, I noticed that my one nostril seemed blocked, I couldn’t breathe out of it or anything. So I made an appointment with an ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) doctor, and he said that something was blocking one of my nasal passages. Maybe fluid build up, maybe a polyp or cyst, regardless they’d have to operate and see what they found.

He said I also had a really deviated septum, and that he’d fix that at the same time. Fun!

The surgery was last Thursday, and the procedure itself was quick (about an hour) and I was put out for the entire thing. But the recover was a BITCH! The pain was way worse than I had anticipated, and I now saw why they had prescribed me Oxycotin for the pain.

Turns out there was a big cyst growing in my nasal cavity, and that’s what caused all the problems. Thankfully they caught it in time, before it caused even more problems. Biopsy of it came back clear, so that was a big relief as well.

The worst part of the whole experience was when my husband removed my packing the day following the surgery. OMG! People say the pain is worse than childbirth.. Yeah, I was seeing stars when he pulled it out, it was unlike anything I’d experienced before.

Thankfully, that was the worst of it. The healing process takes awhile (1-2 months), but so far the doctor says things are healing nicely. Hopefully this will be the last of my medical issues, as I don’t know how much more of this I can take.
